We mourn the passing of Robert Matthew Susman, aged 85, in his home on June 30, 2018. Robert was born on June 5, 1933, in Waukegan, IL. He was preceded in death by his father, Matthew Susman, his mother, Angeline (nee Celesnik) Susman, his brother Donald Susman, and two nephews, William Deacon and Robert Faber. Robert Susman was a loving father to four children, Barbara Ann, Robert Michael, Richard Matthew and James William Susman. He was also a loving grandfather to 7 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild. He is survived by his former wife, Gwendolyn (Susman) Mason, his sister Margaret Faber, and brother-in-law, Nicholas Faber, and 3 nephews and 2 nieces. Robert worked for his father Matthew and the family business, Susman Linoleum & Rug, Co., in Waukegan and Gurnee, Illinois, since his childhood and throughout his life (except during his two years of honorable military service, serving in the U.S. Army in Germany).
